Derick Dillard: Breaking the Duggars’ Rules, Partying Behind Jill’s Back (Report)

Over the past few weeks, Derick Dillard has set himself apart as something of an unexpected rebel within the Duggar family.

Now, we should note that we mean Derick’s behavior is rebellious only by Duggar standards, which means he adheres to Jim Bob’s strict fundamentalist views, he just occasionally expresses them in unorthodox ways.

Most of the controversies surrounding Derick have had to do with the 28-year-old’s social media presence.

Back in August Derick attacked Jazz Jennings on social media, tweeting that his fellow TLC star, who’s also a transgender teen, is starring in a deceptive “reality show that’s based on a non-reality.”

Dillard added that “gender is ordained by God.”

Earlier this month, Dillard stirred further controversy when he tweeted about racism in America, informing his followers that it’s virtually non-existent.

It seems Derick has enjoyed stirring the pot on social media lately, but one of his latest posts attracted negative attention from fans for reasons that Dillard probably didn’t anticipate:

Derick posted the above video earlier this week along with a caption reading:

“Had a blast getting to hang out with international friends at the international bonfire last night! #intlbonfire17 #internationalstudents #danceparty #southasianstyle”

It may seem innocent enough–and it is–but according to the Duggars’ mindset the most innocuous activities can hide the greatest temptations.

The Duggars are strictly opposed to all forms of dancing, believing, as Michelle Duggar once explained, that it promotes promiscuity by stirring up “sensual” feelings.

“I thought they didn’t approve of dancing? Looks pretty wild,” commented one fan.

“I didn’t know you danced. I know Jim Bob has strict opinions about dancing and defrauding. Where is Jill?” remarked another.

The video above is still live, but Derick deleted a second clip that shows students dancing to the Luis Fonsi hit “Despacito,” after his followers pointed out that the song contains sexually explicit lyrics.

Interestingly, the uproar comes on the heels of reports that Derick is cheating on Jill Duggar, a rumor that Dillard has yet to address directly.

Thus far, the father of two has responded to the speculation only by tweeting several Bible verses about the evils of adultery, a move that’s only added fuel to the fire, as many fans believe the tweets to be Derick’s way of confessing.

If there was any extramarital activity on Derick’s part, the Duggars are no doubt doing their best to sweep it under the carpet.

But if the Josh Duggar sex scandals taught us anything, it’s that there are some stories that even the Duggar PR machine can’t bury.

Kourtney Kardashian: Mom-Shamed For Partying With Younes Bendjima!

After over a decade of being weighed down by his constant douche drama, Kourtney Kardashian has finally broken free from Scott Disick.

No one in their right mind would doubt that it’ll be easier for Kourt to provide a stable, healthy environment for her children without the presence of an unhinged raging alcoholic in the home.

But that doesn’t mean Kourt is being given a pass by the many mom-shamers of social media.

As you may have heard, Kourtney is dating Younes Bendjima, and the two have been spending a lot of time together.

The couple likes to travel, and the frequent photos of Kourt enjoying the beaches of the world have resulted in some major smack talk from her social media followers.

“She’s probably spent more time vacationing than with her kids,” one follower commented on a recent Instagram post.

“It’s sad that both her and Scott have decided to travel and party a lot now without the kids! As a mom I couldn’t do it,” wrote another.

“Once you become a parent, u stop doing you every week. It should be doing things w/ the kids n giving them those memories. But what do I no [sic]!” remarked one irate fan.

Sadly, we don’t think that last remark was meant to be ironic.

Here’s the thing:

Yes, it’s important for parents to be there for their children, and for most people that means taking the kids along on vacations.

But Kourtney isn’t most people.

We’re not saying the fact that she can afford an army of professional caretakers exempts her from the responsibilities of parenting.

We are saying that her kids have bevy of devoted aunts and other family members who have nothing but time and money on their hands, and thus, probably don’t mind taking the kids now and then.

Again, that’s not to say it’s okay for Kourt to dump her kids off on Khloe every weekend, but some weekends? Sure.

It’s important to consider the specifics of Kourtney’s situation here.

Scott Disick is off on a bender and many believe he has no intention of staying home, sobering up, and being a father to his kids … like, ever.

Kourtney’s trying to cope with that, while simultaneously getting to know a man who might actually have an interest in serving as a father figure to her three beautiful kids.

We can see how it might look like she’s just kicking up her heels with little concern for what becomes of her children, and we can understand why folks might take issue with that.

But whatever the case, Kourt certainly doesn’t deserve the level of hate she’s been receiving online.

“What a joke. She’s really desperate now. Heck with the kids, she wants a man,” wrote one Twitter user in response to a pic of Kourtney on the beach.

“Kourtney Kardashian really thinks she’s like 20 years old traveling the world and leaving her kids at home lmao smh,” commented another.

“Go back taking care of ur kids ugly grandma,” tweeted a particularly angry soul.

“‘Can you watch my kids?’ – Kourtney Kardashian,” another joked.

Alright, that last one was actually pretty funny.

Still, if this keeps up, we might go into full “LEAVE KOURTNEY ALONE!!!” mode.
